About Us

Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival is a new event for the people of Tunbridge Wells and Kent. The two day programme of shows is designed for the whole family to enjoy.

Following the huge success of the inaugural festival in October 2015, we are delighted to have secured funding to bring back the Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival on 13 and 14 October 2017. We have some of the very best in the business lined up to perform magical, funny, moving, amazing shows across the town.

Whether you are very young or very grown-up, there will be something for everyone to enjoy at the Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival 2017.
